ASAPH Bad Day

Asaph Bad Day Psalm 73
So I have been think of all the people that have left recently for one reason or another, and some other issues in my life and this was the scripter that was front most in my life. In Psalm 73 1-15 Asaph is looking at the world I won’t put the whole Psalm here you will have to go read it yourself. He talks about the prosperity of the wicked witch comes from the Hebrew word rasha` but its root id RA which is evil it appears in the old testament 249 times it. In verse 2 Asaph says his foot almost slipped we will get back to that when he looked away on the prosperity of the wicked . Job 15 When Job friend talks about the wicked. Asaph talks they are not troubled as other men I propose two things on 2 PETER 2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. and the second is you have now enter a different warfare in life a spiritual warfare not against flesh and blood Ephesians 6:12 and we are now more aware of our advisers the Devil. Our adviser does not want to see the righteous make it to heaven he wants to take down as many as he can he already owns the wicked he not going to take the time to pull them down father in the mud if they are already there. But I want to point out one think first in verse 3 Asaph looked reminds me of another story in the bible Matthew 14:24-33, Mark 6 47-52 and John 6:16:21 when peter look at the water and not at Jesus. But Asaph ends it with being a fool and waking up in God’s house. Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. So we have a place to go the word of God and the House of God even when I think all those that have fallen and I am I luck to have my soul and and the wicked prosper guess my eyes are on the wrong place and some times and not running to the right place at times what say you.

Addiction

I have some thoughts moving around this thought Addictions. I won’t take up much time today Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God; A very true statement for all us But I wanted to look at addiction from webesters says 1 : the quality or state of being addicted 2 : compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance (as heroin, nicotine, or alcohol) characterized by tolerance and by well-defined physiological symptoms upon withdrawal; broadly : persistent compulsive use of a substance known by the user to be harmful. I want to point out all addiction are a heaven and hell issues in my opion reading, comics, games, there are others more on boarder line, smoking, drinking, then a couple that cross the line adultery. There could be good addiction reading bible, prayer, fasting church attendance, on those previous they are harder to work at and we have to usually fight the negative addiction. Addictions can become a stumbling block Romans 14, 1 Corinthians 8. Are Addictions a way to hide ourselves from our problems and feel a small amount of pleasure or are they a way to keep from following God fully. I think we need to examine what we allow to take up our time and look at some of our battles and look at the origin. I don’t believe a sprit is behind everything sometimes it is just the flesh and how we want to deal with individual problems. I just wanted the thought to come up, what say you?

Anointed

I have an interesting thought this week 1 Samuel 24:6 6And he said unto his men, The LORD forbid that I should do this thing unto my master, the LORD’s anointed, to stretch forth mine hand against him, seeing he is the anointed of the LORD. 1 Samuel 24:10 10Behold, this day thine eyes have seen how that the LORD had delivered thee to day into mine hand in the cave: and some bade me kill thee: but mine eye spared thee; and I said, I will not put forth mine hand against my lord; for he is the LORD’s anointed. This same point is readdressed in 1 Samuel 26. I have heard a lot of preacher use this subject to advised not to talk about them due to their in position of leader ship. I still see where DAVID still citised Saul and his leardship and If you look up at the word anointed it means a•noint əˈnɔɪntShow Spelled[uh-noint] verb (used with object) 1. to rub or sprinkle on; apply an unguent, ointment, or oily liquid to. 2. to smear with any liquid. 3. to consecrate or make sacred in a ceremony that includes the token applying of oil: He anointed the new high priest. 4. to dedicate to the service of God. I don’t have a problem with just a couple of thoughts to add to this ideal maybe. 1. All members of the church are called to preach the great commission Mark 16: 15-20, Luke 24 44-49 Matthew 18-20 so we are all called to preach the gospel dose that protection flow to the saints when they are witnessing. Also what of those running ministries (Sunday school, usher, janitor, sound technician and many others) in church are they not also called and anointed would not that protection also fall on them. Then what about when Paul rebuke Peter public in Antioch I still have a few more thoughts. 2 Timothy 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, ACTS 2:39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call. So if God dose the calling and anointing with the Holy Ghost are we not all anointed. I Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; The rest of the scripture also has deserves some reading . 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God; 22Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts. Romans 12: 2-5 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 3For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. 4For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office: 5So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. We have been told to test the sprits I John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but test the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Philippians 2:12 12Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. I do you have to take what is preached and read the scriptures and test and pray to what is preached before you accept it on blind faith just because it is preached also the same goes for talking about people’s problems they should be handled the same way as the pastor wants to be treated I believe God’s protection extends to all due to we are all under God’s anointed protection so all situation should be handled In a professional and godly manner from marriages, deployed personnel, mental problems, church functions all should be included or all should be exclude. What say you?

Secrete

I Had an interesting thought that I have been mulling over the last few days. On Secrets not our secrets as discussed before but of God. One of God Secrets in the old testament was his name Exodus 3 :14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. But that secret was reviled in the New testament in Jesus. But I would like to go back to the old testament for this secrete in the book of Job 1:6-12 6Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. 7And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 8And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? 9Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? 10Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 11But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face. 12And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD. First thing I want you to notice is God started the conversation not the Devil, Now look at Job 2 Job 2:1-7 1Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD. 2And the LORD said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 3And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause. 4And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life. 5But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face. 6And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life. Luke 22:31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: I look at these points God did not stop what was to come for any man but one of the greatest secrets is God Faith in you to overcome. We all fall short I know that but when the test comes and we stand with our Faith and do the right thing as we rewards God faith in us. And the second thing which I noticed when the victory over their issues it was forever settles and a major blow was sent to the Devil. The only point I am really making is we need to stand our ground pass our test and see what the victory may be and honor Jesus our God. What say you.

Sercets

I guess I have had some thoughts this week about Secrets it has not left my mind. I have decided to try to put it down for a thought. There was a news article this week which showed that they could tattoo a micro chip on you are and they can tract your medical issues and money and your current location. I am not preaching this is the mark of the beast but beware of that as time moves forward. http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=CNG.6e1e2ad90e2d94b12b6258b7e9c5b33d.611&show_article=1
I want to start right at the begging of the Bible Genesis 1-4 this is the story of creation and Adam and Eve there were no secret God could walk with man and talk and share everything was open and communication with God was possible. Genesis 3:7 and the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. This is an interesting spot in my mind they hid tried to create a secret. Then we go into the whole banishment and punishment for disobey God word. But God has a plan. But I want to look at Sampson He also had a secret from God about his hair. I like to look at the end of this story in after they have cut his hair Judges 16:25 And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said, Call for Samson, that he may make us sport. And they called for Samson out of the prison house; and he made them sport: and they set him between the pillars.
I also would like to go to on other story in the bible the woman was brought to Jesus to be judged and in John 8: 8-9 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. Now know one knows what Jesus wrote but between what was said and the writing on the ground I wonder if god was writing their secrets.
In the bible talks about secret 93 times bit in luke 8:16-1716No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. 17For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. I would submit God is the Alpha and omega and begging and end as described in Revelations that means God is omi present can read our thoughts see the true values of our hearts but due to freedom of choice way back in Genesis. I have heard people ask who is Gods opposite and some people say the Devil but that’s not true the Devils opposite could only be Gabrial or any other angle.
With all this said I wanted to just take a few more minutes. The Devil knows are secrets have you ever had one you try to keep in the closet and you are tormented by your own mind and you get a whispering in your ear all the time the devil is the father of all Lies and he has worked on his craft for 4000 years and is very smart at what he does.
The world can also keep track us there monitoring our internet use phone calls , power use and time cards and water use what TV shows and channels to what movies you watch. You can’t hide from the world no matter it seams but on the flip side also as a Christian look at the story of Paul in Acts 16:16-20
The problem we have is we really can’t keep a secret to ourselves someone always finds out between man the Devil and God already knows so we mine as well open our hearts and our minds to God let him clean us out and be blameless after repentance and sole searching laying down the condemnation and weight . God can’t and won’t force himself in we have to open up to him and let him cast it into the sea of forgetfulness this will eliminate the need of the Devil, ourselves or the world touting our info and condemning us. If we want a secret to come out we mine as well be like Paul and have the authority and power threw Jesus Christ and be a total repsentation of God shining threw us. The greatest secret we perhaps even keep from our selves when we don’t clean out our own heart is can we leave it all behind. I don’t know some of us may be and others not and that choich is always facing us weater we die or go in the rapture. What say you?

Flight / Pause

I am sorry for the lack of any Major lessons I was away last month and had to focus on a class, I have a small lesson for this week and this will be a little longer between blogs for a time due to health issues not a great excuse but it will have to be the way it is for a bit will also list all the blogs titles after this short thought for today if you want any of them and it is not still published I will provide them in email kowalski@universalministriesoftruth.org as requested. Again thank you Jesus for all your lessons and your support. Thank you reader for your understanding keep eye out you never know what will show up. THANK YOU all I bow out. I was thinking about flying. If you were to ask most people what power they would like it would be to fly, Or if you ask them what heaven will be like 85% of people it would be flying. Humans from the begin of time had try to fly it was not until the right brother invented the first plane was that possible. The devil was given domion over the earth, Epheisions 6:12 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. and he is tide to this location he is not onmipreset like god is Revealation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Revelations1:17-18 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. I Thessalonians 4: 14-17 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. There was a studied done on our astronauts when they left the world and in space besides being weightless they would majority become a God fearing person due to there was no enemy in space that was there to fight them. Now just think about it when God blows the trumpet and Gravity an holding force that keeps on earth bound to this world and regulates time every day is released by the blowing of a trumpet and through his grace we are no longer bound by time and the sin on the world. Just an interesting thought what say you

Simple Thought

I have just one small interesting thought this week and sorry for last week I was sick. Genesis 2- 19-20 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. I would just like to point out even after all this time men are still doing what God had man originally do and that was to we still name. Look at science we find creatures that are extinct or new species and we still do what God had us originally do name. What does that say about the consistency of God no matter how old the earth or time marches on. So what say you?

I had an interesting thought I was reading the Bible 1Kings 18-20 this is the story of Elijah and the Prophets of Baal and Elijah running and hiding. I really want to call you r attention to 1Kings 18:33-35 And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood. And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time. And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water. Now I am going to pause hear for a second. I want to talk about fire. Fire needs three things a spark, fuel and oxygen to burn but fire also has a few weakness being time and water. Time is weekness because the longer a fire burns the less fuel it has to burn and, water fire can’t burn water but it can be hot enough to evaporator water into a gas form there for rendering useless as a fire retardate. So back to the story in I Kings 18 And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word. Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. Then the story continues on how God caused it to rain then right in the next chapter Elijah is running away. II Kings 2:11And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. So we see that Elijah the prophet a fire loses a little steam when it rains but is rekindled, I would also like to point out in Matthew 26-31 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? Look at this story Peter had enough Fire to walk out on to the waves and kept it going until he looked at the water and lost some of his fire until God reached out for him but pressing on to ACTS 2 Peter and the apostles became a Fire unto the whole world burning brightly today. But how would the story of Matthew read if Peter never looked away? So my contention and there are more examples in the Bible what if in your walk with God we always say you will be tested by going threw the fire to come out as pure as Gold and there is no doubt about that. But what if out fire is tested as we start to walk on the waters of Time, doubt, Mental instability you name your river but there you are never letting your light go out to phrase a song you burn bright at the at the start and the water is evaporating letting you walk on dry ground but then you start to look around maybe family says you can’t doctor’s or maybe even the Devil, side not the devil would like nothing for you to do better than to have you drop your fire he is afraid of it look at his punishment, back to point your fire starts to lose its heat the waters start to rise, you start to drown, so you call upon the Lord for help and rekindle and burn and be a whole bigger miracles may accor like Elijah and the chariots of fire or do you get on the boat of life and drift away. I can’t say I am better to preach to you my own illnesses and things sometimes make me also lose sight but I have to remember to go back to the source and keep on walking in fire of the holy ghost no matter what the condition is. So I say all of that to say, Can your Fire pass the Water test, what say you?

Cast your Cares

I have a thought maybe a question, The text is from I Peter 5: 6-7 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Matthew 11:28-30 28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Psalm 55:22Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. I know some people read this but I have been sick for a long time pushing up on 8 years. I have been asking God for my healing in my body and a couple of other issues, but over the last two weeks I have no tried a different approach I have been praying for these request for years by Faith I believe that God has all those prayer request well in hand so I just placed all of my old problems at the lord’s feet and now am praying to see or hear something from God that I have not seen or heard. I know it is not always easy to leave those burdens and problems at Gods feet. I can tell you I have felt a little pressure has seemed to leave my mind and my body. What if we all took this approach and just trust in God to handle the small stuff and really pray for closer walk with Jesus and a more powerful demonstration of God power in our lives. So what say you?

Our House

Well I have a thought today I know we are all at the events throughout the world, Matthew 24:7 For Nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences and earthquakes, in divers places. This really looks like the time don’t it. But if that’s the case I have a really important question. If God really did come back but if you were asleep and God came personally to your house would you let Jesus Christ God almighty come into your house. I bring that question to mind think about for a second really think about it makes you think about are you really ready for a visitation from the Lord. Is your life really clean or do we hid things in our house some times we all go to church and hide things good even when we go to work but what about are homes. So what say you.
